Paul’s preaching. August 22
But shewed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance. Acts 26:20
Paul’s preaching can be summed up in three steps.
Repent: This means to turn away from a sinful lifestyle.
Turn to God: We can’t just say I’m going to straiten myself up. We need God to do this. So we turn from sin , to God. Which means we trust in His promises of forgiveness and new life thru Jesus Christ Gods only Son. And we also trust in Gods help for all life’s situations, problems and needs.
Do works that go along with our faith: We live our new lives in devotion to God. Trying our best to fulfill His purposes in the world. Big or small it doesn’t matter. We now want to do works for the Lord and be dedicated to Him.
Salvation is still a simple thing today, turn from sin, to God. Then spend our lives being and doing what God would have us to do.
